Thanks,
I appreciate it. There's going to be a delay for 81-90 (probably 2-3 weeks), but after that list comes out, the remaining lists should follow in a timely manner.

I can't wait to see your entire 1-100, but I will have to say I like the fact that you have Marrero in your top 100. He is young and has a ways to go, but he just has too much power potential to be left out of alot of a Top 100 lists I have seen.

81-90 is being edited now, not sure on the ETA for it. When that shows up on the main page, I will submit 71-80, and so on all the way down to #1

Am curious is Haeger's somewhat respectable Spring Training bumps him up on your list at all? Last outing was a bit rough, but otherwise looked more impressive than Gavin Floyd - which isn't saying much, I guess. :-b

it's cool that you're trying, but these lists shouldn't really be published
every portion kind of has a glaring weakness
can tell that you're at least thinking independently
but if someone drafted based of these, they'd be in trouble

Humphrey, these lists (like those that anyone else produces) are opinion based, out of curiosity, what is it that you have taken issue with. Perhaps I can speak to those questions.

1-40 is fairly solid...should have just stuck with that because:

matt albers at 41...incorrect
john danks at 46...wrong again
wade davis at 53...way off
joey votto at 56..way to low
justin huber at 65...enough to cancel publishing alone
craig hansen at 70...nice try, but no way
eric patterson at 74...ha!
jimmy barthmaier 77...starting to wonder if you are a HOU fan
preston mattingly...tough to argue that he's even a top 150
charlie haeger...though fun to follow, barely even a prospect

like i said, your top 40 isn't bad
your mistake was attempting a top 100
it was a reach for you
and you clearly were just trying to make a splash
while you should have been trying to produce quality work
the back end of this list in large is a joke
making this list--i'm sorry--the worst top 100 i've seen this year
ultimately, the cafe looks bad for publishing it

either step it up nexy year or just do a top 50 instead
even prospectus didn't do a top 100 until this year (50 before that)
no shame in only doing 50...or 75 like SI
you're on the right track
if you would have just stayed within your capibilities
there'd be nothing to complain about
but some people may actually end up adding huber because of you
and that's not something you'll want on your resume

Humphrey, out of curiosity where would you rank the players that you questioned?
